Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe



Tic-Tac-Toe


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 24 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Get three in a row! That's the goal of this bonus round. Inspired by a fanwork event type called kink bingo, this round encourages you to create and fill out themed prompt cards.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. There's a lot of text here, but if you read carefully and follow the instructions step by step, you will be okay.


RULES
Please refer to the first comment thread of this post for an example of how this round works.

PROMPTING

  1. Select a ship to create your prompt card about. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Haruki & Kazuma). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Haruki/Kazuma). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

  2. Visit this card generator.
    • Here is a visual guide to using it.
    • The large text box is where you can list prompts if you have your own ideas. Please list at least 9 prompts; you can list more if you want. (The generator says you need at least 24, but it's lying.) Single words or short phrases are better than sentences.
    • Otherwise, you can use the dropdown menu found right below it. Note: some of these prompts lists are NSFW. (NSFW prompts are a-ok as long as you tag for it.) If you don't like some of the options that appear in a prompt list, you can delete them.
    • Text prompts only, please. Also, each card square must be unique—don't list the same prompt 9 times.
    • In "Configuration Options," make sure you select 3x3 and (Normal prompt). This is the most important step!
    • Leave the tic-tac-toe card with its default colors, so everyone can read it clearly.
    • Click the "Create a bingo card" button.
    • Scroll down to see the card that was created for you. If you don't like the prompts it picked, you can reroll by clicking "Create a bingo card" again.
    • When you're satisfied, scroll further down the page until you see a textarea box full of HTML.
  3. Copy and paste the HTML from the box and into the body of your prompt comment, then post!

FILLING

Fill prompts by selecting an individual square to create fanwork for, then leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work. (Optional:) If you can fill three squares from a prompt in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line, you get a tic-tac-toe (and an additional point bonus)! You can also just fill prompts as you please and get standard points.
  • Prompt squares are labeled as follows:
    A1 B1 C1
    A2 B2 C2
    A3 B3 C3
  • If you're trying for tic-tac-toe, you cannot combine squares into one fill. If your fill can satisfy multiple squares, pick the most relevant square: e.g., one square is sailing and another is pirates and you make a fill about pirates sailing, it's mostly pirates so put down the pirates square.
  • Each fill must stand alone as an individual piece, but all your fills can slot into a larger universe if you'd like.
  • You cannot fill a prompt square more than once, but you can fill every square on a tic tac toe card if you want to.
  • You cannot work with your teammates to get a tic-tac-toe. Only individually achieved tic-tac-toes get the bonus.
  • Multiple people can fill the same prompt square. You cannot "block" others from getting tic-tac-toe.
  • Remember to also follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

Posts not using this format will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, regardless of what they contain. They, like all comments in this community, are subject to the code of conduct.

If you see anyone breaking the code of conduct (e.g., causing drama, being rude) anywhere (not just DW), please contact the mods immediately.


SCORING
These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate. Make as many prompts/fills as you want!

For prompts: 5 points for each tic-tac-toe card (maximum of 50 prompt points per team per round)

For fills:
First 4 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 5-10: 15 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21-50: 2 points each
Fills 51+: 1 point each
Tic-tac-toe Bonus: 2 points each for the first 12 achieved by your team

All scored content must be created new for this round.


Etc.
If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only (see the line of links below this post).

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

Aobajousai Coffee and Tea, fondly nicknamed 'Seijou Cafe' by frequent patrons, is a quaint establishment on a busy street with a warm, inviting interior and a limited but best-selling menu. It was built from the ground up by a group of friends who have not let their status as business partners come between them, and they have developed a reputation among locals for being friendly and approachable. Customers cite the atmosphere as the cafe's main draw, as well as their signature milk bread. It has become a town staple, and would presumably be missed someone were to shut it down.

Unfortunately, this has become Ushijima's primary mission.

Ushijima does not like to brag about accomplishments, whether it is his or his family's at large, but it would not be hubris to state the fact that Beans and Leaves is one of the most successful coffee chains in the country. As of this year, it has ninety-one shops under its belt, and the number is only growing. It is only rational that competitors will be swallowed by its force, and those who are
are compensated well for their efforts.

But while Ushijima knows that there exists a number of ways to convince someone to see his way, he cannot help the blunt manner in which he speaks to Oikawa Tooru, one of the founders, a mere half hour after seeing him in action. Oikawa greets every person who passes through the door with a friendly smile — had greeted Ushijima like this, too, before Ushijima revealed his intentions — and occasionally checks on every table no matter how busy the hour. He is welcoming without being overbearing, making Ushijima wonder if he has taken hospitality classes of some sort or if it is the result of his natural charm. Either way, heat blooms on Ushijima's nape when Oikawa touches his shoulder and asks how he's enjoying his Americano.

Ushijima does not say it is wonderful, even if it is, nor does he say that he's enjoying himself very much in Oikawa's presence. What does come out of his mouth, regrettably, is a flat, "You should've come to Beans and Leaves."

Oikawa does not respond immediately. Ushijima thinks that perhaps the name might not be familiar to him, however impossible that is, since one just opened across the street from Seijou, but hypothesis is quickly dismissed when Oikawa says, almost accusingly, "you're Ushijima Wakatoshi."

"I assume that you've read one of the articles—"

"Get the hell out of my shop."

This is how Ushijima finds himself promptly escorted outside with the door slammed in his face, as harshly as a heavy glass door can be slammed. Needless to say, the mission has not been successful, but he has determination in spades.

He will try again tomorrow.

Comin' atcha with the last minute fills

***

Akutsu dragged himself across the battlefield, hand by hand past the rotting bodies of the other ronin who had fought and died alongside him. The battle had been for a pointless cause but the pay offered had been good; they had all taken the chance and luck had failed them. Now they were all dead and the blood Akutsu could still feel dripping down his hip said he would probably join them soon enough.

Unless, as something in his mind was saying, he could make it to the forest. He wasn't sure why all his instinct were screaming that he needed to be there; he just get there before all his blood drained out and onto the battlefield. Akutsu was a creature of feeling, not thought and he trusted his gut when it told him to do something.

So he crawled one painful handful of grass at a time until the greenery shifted to low leafy plants and shorter trees. A few feet further he managed to reach a tree with a trunk wide enough to prop himself against--and that was when his strength finally failed him. He pressed a hand to his side, and when he pulled it away his blurring vision showed it was still a bright, fresh red.

"You made it!" Suddenly there was a boy standing in front of Akutsu. The boy leaned in, putting his face close to Akutsu's side and clicking his tongue. "If you had taken much longer I'm not sure I'd be able to save you."

Akutsu groaned. His eyes fell shut and it was a struggle to open them again. "Save me..?"

"Yes." the boy placed one of his hands on Akitsu's forehead and the pain in his side suddenly dropped away. "I could feel the power of your soul the moment you arrived and I knew I wanted you then. And after the battle your will to survive just made you shine all the brighter."

The hand on Akutsu's forehead began to cool, providing more relief he hadn't known he needed.

"Just say yes and you can stay here with me forever. If you agree to become one of mine, the shadows of the forest will give you power, and all you'll have to do in return is offer guidance to those who wander within the borders of my forest to what they are seeking."

Akutsu coughed, and even through the cold he could feel the blood bubbling in his lungs. “And why should I...I trust anything you--you’re saying..?”

The hand pulled away from his forehead and the pain rushed back through him. “If you agree, you’ll never have to feel like this again.”

Akutsu coughed, gasping to catch his breath after. "Yes! Yes fine I agree, I’ll stay!"

And just like that, a wave of cold snapped through his body, and when it was gone it took all of Akutsu's pain with it. His vision cleared, and when the boy stepped away Akutsu stood without problem.

"Akutsu Jin, I welcome you to your new home. I am the god called Taichi, the guardian spirit of the Aokigahara, and now you belong to me."

xiaoyi why did you do this

***



often, there is nothing out there but the blackness of space. choutarou's heard that it's full of invisible things, things that physics has yet to qualify, but he's been out there. he believes it.

he's earned his mobile suit the hard way: his colony had come calling, and choutarou, an only child, had come to answer. side three was already under fire, and side six had been gassed. he's heard every grisly truth and rumor out there. he'd climbed up to take his pilot's stripes with sorrow instead of pride, and now he fights for the spacenoids. (or, at least, that's what choutarou remembers: the blood, instead of the tears, and the fierce joy of his colors, instead of the gravity-bound misery of earth. that's the only truth he can afford to believe in.)

but he's heard other stuff about it all out there. the shop talk went that the feds had a new weapon of some kind, one with a face and unstoppable power. it rarely left survivors, and it was, as he's heard it, piloted by a child. choutarou still shudders at the thought; the war consumed everything and it, too, rarely left anyone unscathed, but the federation took a new low when it drafted children into the fray.

the station is relatively busy this time of year, with side three newly declared as the republic of zeon and his home colony helping to organize the war effort. choutarou's been shipped out here for almost a year and apart from the usual patrols, nothing's happened.

it's every mobile suit's destiny to come back scarred, with its pilot never promised any chances of survival. choutarou wears a cross around his neck for a reason: in the old days, before earth had even begun to send out people to colonize space, it had been a symbol of sacrifice; silver had been the chosen metal of protectors, purifiers. it has specific density, and hopefully might survive whatever his body doesn't, in the worst of all possible cases.

choutarou tries not to think about it. there's a hope born and bred into every spacenoid that, wherever he might end up, it might finds its way back home. that's the pride of the colonies, after all: that home was where you made it, and after so many months of fighting, loss, and injury, choutarou's pretty okay with the cushy space station.

he can spot an aircar with the classic problem: it's beached on the ground, with someone swearing at the engine, hood popped up and open. choutarou's not great at aircars himself, but after years of basic mobile suit maintenance, he thinks, he might be able to lend a hand.

"need some help?" choutarou calls, and the stranger stops swearing, lifts his head to meet choutarou's eyes.

"the hell are you," he replies, and choutarou offers him a smile.

"i work here. and it looks like you're stuck." (it's never destiny when choutarou makes a choice. that's the curse of the spacenoids, too: it's their pride, and identity, locked together, live or die. in the years to come, he'd never know that shishido ryou was a federation officer.) "need a hand?"

Shuuzou fashions himself into a historian, fingers tracing over the calendar the way a geographer would with maps, committing to memory every second of a time that feels so long past that it might as well have taken place centuries ago. He finds himself walking the same paths that he once walked with company, stopping at street corners and remembering the way it felt to bask in the warmth of someone else, not having to be concerned about how much light they were giving off because there was no such thing as too much, or not enough, when they're off the basketball court.

In the end, it's only just a handful of days, playing on loop at the back of Shuuzou's mind like a song that he just can't get out of his head. He thinks of Tatsuya's smile, of his laugh, his gentle voice as he shortened Shuuzou to Shuu, with an easily familiarity that Shuuzou has never found anywhere else. He misses it, more than he ever thought he could miss such a short period of time. It's different to the way he misses his days at Teiko, or the way he misses being in Japan at all. Shuuzou would relive all of those moments if he could without changing a thing, but with Tatsuya, Shuuzou wishes that he could live every variant of those few days and explore every possibility. He thinks about every detail of every day and how tweaking one thing would change another, the way that Shuuzou smiling at Tatsuya in a certain way could have ended with them kissing before parting ways, just how Shuuzou wishes he had the chance to.

He has the upper hand over most historians though because he knows he will see Tatsuya again. He'll need to be patient for it, but he knows it's going to happen, and he'll have the chance to explore every possibility that he's currently wondering about. He'll learn what it's like to lean into Tatsuya when he's invited to, instead of keeping his distance. He'll learn how it feels to have their hands brush against each other as they walk, instead of carefully holding his hands by his sides.

He'll get to explore all of it, and he's sure that Tatsuya will surprise him even more, just as he always does whether it's face to face or over the messages that they send to each other. He smiles smugly down at his phone and tells himself that he has this advantage over other historians too. His time with Tatsuya isn't over yet.
